Marikina classes could resume in January 2021 after Typhoon Ulysses left serious damage to the city, Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said on Tuesday.
“I decided to suspend classes because there is no right environment at the moment for our students to have distance learning at home. The one-month break, when it ends, will begin the Christmas holidays,” he said in an interview. ABS-CBN News Channel.
“We are thinking that classes will start again in January,” he added.
Theodore said more than 50,000 families have been left behind, with many areas of the city under flooding or muddy to the knees, making roads impassable. He added that at least 9,000 homes have no electricity.
The mayor said earlier that the suspension, which covers all levels, will pave the way for the city’s rehabilitation. He said the suspension could be extended if schools are not yet ready for distance and online education within a month.
